AI with facial hair-SHOCK, HORROR!.

#1
So, Betty W's rules for the Andrew determine that a full set or nothing is the way forward.

What happens to a Sea cadet instructor if he grows a moustache?

Then, Betty's rules for crabs and pongos say porn star tache is okay but a beard is a big naughty unless you are an RLC (former Pioneer) Sergeant.

So, what happens or should happen at the Youth Club leaders when they turn up with the wrong facial hair set (including the women) ?

Pioneer Sergeant is an appointment in an infantry regiment nothing to do with the Pioneer Corps or it's successor the Rather Large Corps.

AI's are expected, and officers required, to comply with the values and standards of the British Army which includes turnout, which includes facial hair.

That said rules are for the guidance of the wise... I suspect many counties would rather have a good man with a face fungus fetish than stick rigidly to the rules and loose the man.

This makes me laugh, as a Regular I have to shave every day (except for the top lip, which every time I try to grow my wife goes mental), as I have done for the past 20 years, I am also a cadet instructor, I still shave for parade nights.

When I am on leave, I ensure that by the time I go back to work I have the full Ish of facial hair, us squdies treat not having a shave as a treat, how sad is that

Unless you have a skin condition, which you can get dispensation for in the Reg's, even though you look like a twat, it must be the same for you blokes, I tell you what, when I leave the mob I am growing my 3 hairs (thats what I have left) as long as I can, and then I may get a perm, or at a push, highlights..... Check me out

AI's should be setting the example to the troops FFS! Unless, as LJS states, there is a medical problem, and AI should bloody well shave. It's slack drills otherwise.
